nuked small civilization 10 times within 30 seconds, just to be sure they were all gone. 420/69 metascore
Serious Part: Used to play on Xbox and haven't touched this game in ages and recently got it (for free) after buying a new Radeon card, and after reading other reviews, I believe they are being harsh.
I have both Supreme Commander AND Forged Alliance, so I am trying not to be biased. Both games have pros and cons, but I honestly prefer the original SC over Forged Alliance, and here's why:
Yeah, FA has all the DLC and everything, but it's not the same. AI seems to be worse, and from my experience I can't stockpile resources nearly as well in FA, as from about 2 minutes into the game, even on easy bots, you begin undertaking a lot of strategic bombings by the bots and if you don't stack AA then you get screwed early game.
The hud, I must admit, is much better in FA however you can get used to the bigger, more blocky HUD in Supreme Commander 1 very easily.
IGN rating: 10/10, Horrible.
PROS OF SC ORIGINAL:
-Seems to run a bit smoother
-Better AI (opinion)
-Big hud that takes up some portion of the screen
-Graphics fall behind the polished FA edition
-Doesn't have all DLC
I say try out Supreme Commander, if you like it, then buy Forged Alliance.
That is all :D
